President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday declared that he was not worried about the outcome of the Presidential Election petition tribunal that affirmed his victory in the February 23, 2019 polls.

CHIEF JUSTICE OF NIGERIA, PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI

Femi Adesina, the presidential Spokesman who disclosed this on Channels television, said he dedicated his victory to God and Nigerians who trooped out overwhelmingly to vote for him during the election for a second term.

Good conscience fears no evil report. I was unperturbed all along, because I knew Nigerians freely gave us the mandate. We are now vindicated,” he said.

Adesina while also commending the judiciary for “dispensing justice without fear or favour”, said the president has extended a hand of fellowship to those who had felt aggrieved at the outcome of the election, and went to court, noting that it was within their democratic rights.

“It is time for the country to move forward as one cohesive body, putting behind us all bickering and potential distractions over an election in which Nigerians spoke clearly and resoundingly,” he was quoted to have said.

Atiku Abubakar, Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election, had asked the tribunal to declare him winner, arguing that the election was rigged in favour of Buhari.
